until the election. >> bertha, thanks so much. how about that? can the romney boubs many coal continue? >> it can. think about how far these stocks came down. they were completely obliterated and traded as if they were never going to recover. once we have that first debate where governor romney spoke to the coal name, they've been in rally mode here and now, i think people are realizing regardless if it's a romney victory or obama victory, you're going to see coal recover. i think the upside in coal continues. >> there's been a nat gas relation? >> a lot of people are focusing away from the shift from that gas, away from coal to nat gas and now saying maybe there will be some shifting if nat gas breaks above four, maybe back to coal. i believe you can be long coal and also long the nat gas. >> all right. well, we continue to monitor the gas shortage gripping the new york metro area. really, the try state area. the squeeze sending ripple affect throughout the region. jackie deangelis has been monitoring this closely and is also the host of a new online show on called "futures n

the election is not so far away. >> reporter: that's right, and, you know, in addition to that, he has to also balance whether or not he's going to go and tour the impacted areas, but also when he will go back out on the campaign trail. i did talk to a campaign official who said that is still fluid. the hope was that the president would head back out on the campaign trail tomorrow. as you know, he's already suspended trips both for today and yesterday, two critical days leading up to the election day that the president has not been out there on the campaign trail. those outstanding questions and it's still too fluid for officials to say with any certain degree of certainty that the president will be heading back out there real soon. >> dan lothian reporting live from the white house this morning. for more information about how you can help those affected by sandy, and i know many of you do, check out i'll be right back. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of
into the election year, that nobody was going to spend any time on it, and it has been remarkable how the candidates have been on the subject, given how much of it we have talked about. significant things like tax policy and policies on deficits. i think there is going to be a long period of time before we will get any action on this. i'm just talking about when someone puts out an idea, which has to be challenged in congress and debated, and then you get something fast, and then you have the implementation. after all, think about where we are as far as implementation in terms of obamacare. unfortunately, i am very pessimistic about when we finally get resolution. >> yes, sir. >> i am a student at harvard kennedy school. you started your remarks talking about the incredible remarks before the conservatorship. as we think about the entities that will follow, how we think about creating an appropriate amount of political installation against lobbying when it comes to capital requirements or appropriately pricing governments guarantee? >> that is a real important question. i can tell you that during my

points, gaps in gpa between mean scores of black and white students and most elected schools. another principle stated in router was it is unconstitutional to use racial preferences to the extent that unduly are members of any racial group. that is a quote. we argue, and we think the evidence shows that preferences in texas unduly harm members of every racial group. they unduly harm the asians primarily first and foremost to are excluded and whites or excluded like abby fisher, because of their race who might otherwise have been admitted. we think they do worse harm to black and hispanic students who are misled into thinking they are well qualified to have strong academic records at the university of texas and to get there and find out they are not outstanding academic records and lucky to graduate and likely to be at the bottom of their class. i am not talking about black and hispanic students per se. the stock -- top student in the class might be black or hispanic but students of any race, this is usually black or hispanic preference who are admitted based on large preferences are n

the senate would consider cybersecurity legislation after the election. >> it's a perfect morning to talk about scary things, scary things with unpleasant names like mel where and computer worms and trojan horses and even little messages when you get in your in box because you're nothing but headaches and loss. if you don't like the idea of people snooping around your in box or personal e-mail. you care about a company that stirs up electronically and worries about competitive theft over the internet and a few flaws and recently to the director of the cia painted a dire picture of day-to-day cybercrime and the foreign enemies if we don't show ourselves up can inflict enormous damage to the power grid water system and critical infrastructure. we would worry about plans and bombs and not worry about good intentions and acting skills. people care and increasingly so and so this morning "the washington post" has convened a stellar group of cyber experts to highlight the issue. the vulnerability is out there with a whole game of talking about stronger defense. let me welcome now a person steep

'm not worried about the impact on election. i'm worried about the impact on families. >> this is what we live for. >> cenk: all right "viewpoint" is not on the air today because they're in new york, and obviously all of new york is suffering through storm sandy and i can give you the latest. in fact, it just made ground fall in southern new jersey as we speak. the winds are still up to 60 to 80 mph. we've got coastal flooding and 2 million people without power already. on top of that we just also heard unfortunately we have our first storm-related fatality in maryland. so obviously the storm is very, very serious and it should not be surprising to those who have been listening about climate change. unfortunately the media hasn't. reporters as they're hit in the phrase with this storm. >> they're really worried about what is behind me. >> we've been pounded for 40 continuous hours. >> now you can barely stand up. >> sorry just getting pelted. >> okay, whoa, whoa, hey guys. whoa. >> there's things flying off actually the roof here. >> now 100 miles out there are those two survivors two people a

: how do you do that when you are one week before an election? >> sure. i think he has done a good job of reaching out to both republican and democratic governors and mayors. george bush -- his administration provided some help to republican governors that democratic governors didn't get. new orleans wasn't included in the federal state of emergency. >> jennifer: and james do you think, first of all that the decision to halt the campaigns, for example, that is a no-brainer, right? >> yeah absolutely. and i think particularly in the case of obama talking to folks around him, it was clear to me this was not first and foremost a political decision on his part. he just said simply i'm not running out there and raising money and going to pep rallies at the same time that i'm supposed to be overseeing what could compare to katrina. >> jennifer: well, now romney -- you know, cheryl is talking about the president having reached out to governors of both sides. romney as far as we know only spoke to the republican governors, but he did cancel -- at least canceled some
them in congressional races, and they don't want any part of that. >> maybe it's a general election and we see more moderate opinions out there in the general election. >> i. >> cenk: i want to give you one more clip because i love this. bill o'reilly figured it out after the american grievances. let him educate us. >> do you think it has anything to do with grievance because in some african-american communities there is a grievance against whites who are not sympathetic to their cause. and that may be driving a little bit of it. so there are some african-americans who believe that the reason they're not prospering as a community, all right, is because society has not done enough. the reason why society has not done enough because of rich white guys. >> cenk: mark, last word. does it seem like he's saying, here they go again. they want more and more. that's why they want obama to win, so they can take more. all their grievances. >> i find everything that comes out of his mouth coded for a pre-determined response, to empower people to feel okay with feeling that way. i don't know who

you know that in my opinion district seven needs a progressive in this upcoming election i believe i'm that person. i came in second in 2008. i am the only candidate up here that ran in 2008. garnered 19% of the vote and i came in second, and i believe that we need to make our city affordable again for working people, the middle class people. it's not an affordable place to live anymore for most working people so that is something i will work on. and i will oppose major land use development because i believe it's a threat to the preservation of our neighborhoods. it's gentifies our city and it makes it basically a hostile place to live in my opinion especially living out in park merced so if you have a progressive on november 6 vote for me. thank you. >> thank you. ms. gavin. >> i am lynn gavin and i'm a pastor and like so many women there are multiple things that i do and we multi-task and kind of boring even though we didn't term that world. i am running because of the corruption and malfeasance at city hall. i got involved and i was angry they didn't disclose to me they wa

decided it was a better way to wait this out and for those elected officials who decided to ignore my admonition, this is now your responsibility. >> there's always going to be that certain few that despite your best efforts are going to do as they see fit anyway and then at the last minute, decide that they should have left. in life, it's better to have options and not need them than to need options and not have them. >> >> this is actually live, let's listen in for a few seconds. >> be responsive for their needs for food, water and cots. four federal disaster medical assistance teams are aiding our state staff shelters. two teams have arrived and two teams are on their way. the county medical reserve corps is action have id and assessing in our medical shelters for the folks who are there. >> that is chris christie looking pretty has gone guard which by the way for a politician at times like this is terrific because people want you to work hard and he is. fair is fair. we are back let's start with the fight between the mayor and governor. is there any way of knowing who is right? it

wonderful it runs under the mayor's office. why have an elected sheriff? the bottom line was, it didn't work. these sunshine complaints, i voted in the very first election in san francisco in 1999 and they happened to be the latest iteration of the sunshine ordinance. andvy gone back and done the research and seen that you have not taken a single complaint for a hearing except the jewe l gomez and i think that the only reason that you did that was because the civil grand jury pointed it out in their report and you wanted to be able to say no, that is not true, we heard one. you know, it is really auful, and you can be as dismissive as possible, and it is really auful to sit in board and commission meetings and watch citizens denied their right to speak, being told that they are not allowed to speak about certain things. and then, they have to go to the sunshine ordinance task force and fight for those rights under the sunshine ordinance. then to get enforcement, they have to have it referred to you and you simply allow mr. st. croix to dismiss them all. and you wonder why i am a little ticke
have actual results to report and those results show clearly the president will win re-election if we do what we need to do. >> yea! 4.4 million people have already voted. he goes on to encourage volunteers to dig deep. mitt romney spending the day in florida with senator marco rubio and jeb bush. paul ryan will be in wisconsin. romney allegedly took the day off yesterday from campaigning and engaged in what was branded as a storm relief benin stead of a rally but voters show that donors were asked to wait until the candidate turned up to give their donated goods. goods which the red cross neither needed nor wanted. >> photo op. >> it wreaks a lot of the paul ryan soup kitchen photo op and the red cross wants money not goods or even blood donations at this point. the campaign played romney's bio video, the one he played at the republican convention, when asked about fema, he refused to answer questions. we'll be right (vo) brought to you by metlife. stay tuned for the answer. (vo) brought to you by metlife. >> announce
revenue and jobs as opposed to just asking for more and more taxes when governor perdue got elected, the first thing she did with mr. dalton's approval was increase the corporate tax, increased income tax, and ask for a sales tax increase. our employment in north carolina just took a huge dip and that was not good leadership. >> try to be as concise as you can in your response is because we could spend an hour and a to these questions and we want to get to as many topics as possible. oflet's stick with the theme funding source -- 180 miles of 95 runs through north carolina. that is a roadway that is in need of repairs and upgrades. where would you find the money for the repairs and upgrades on 95? >>tolling should be the last choice particularly for existing roads like 95. you have to look at public/private partnerships. we have seen least purchasing an appeal of the federal revenue stream, we have done garden bonds to help in that fashion. we need to get more of our federal tax dollars back from the federal government. we send more money up to washington than we get back. those are
on track is one of the big e issues in the country's election. it could boost barack obama's chances of winning a second term. the economy grew slightly more in the third quarter of this year. released their preliminary gross domestic product figures for the july to september period. gdp grew at an annualized rate after 2%. economists forecasted growth at 1.9%. the rate in the previous quarter was 1.3% which led to further concerns about the economic outlook. consumers helped lead improvement in the latest quarter. personal consumption accounts for nearly 3/4 of the activity and it grew 2%. housing surged more than 14%. people in business appeared more cautious. their spending is down 1.3% from the previous quarter. exports shrank 1.6%. they were down for the first time since early 2009. >>> here's the three-day world weather forecast. >>> that's all for this hour on "newsline." i'm keiko kitagawa in tokyo. thank you for joining us.

of the rules of order to nominate and elect officers. >> and specifically that would be the offices of president and vice president of the commission. taking the president first, commissioner vietor. >> it would be my great pleasure to nominate commissioner torres as the next president of the san francisco public utilities commission. >> thank you. and is there a second? >> second. >> and seconded. is there comment? >> [speaker not understood].

it makes sense for us to do so after -- sometime after the november election when we have a better sense of where things are. but i think that even if the measures pass, i think there is a lot more that the city has to do. and, by the way, one of the things that i am interested in doing and will be doing in the next couple of weeks is introducing a motion to expand the make-up of this committee or least to consider including city college. because i don't think we can have a full picture of how we're educating young people in the city without having city college at the table. so i look forward to that conversation. the last point that i will make is that i do want to acknowledge mr. hoover lydell, who is in the audience and the reason i want to acknowledge him because he has been an institution in the school district for many, many years. when i started as a lawyer working on the consent decree, hoover served as an expert in the court and i'm glad that the school district continues to use his efforts. he has benefited thousands and thousands of young people over the years. so i'm glad t
are going to read grades. we have been talking about the government and upcoming election. so we will read our book. i love the way i see table one. everybody's eyes are on me. what a great job. "grace for president." one monday mrs. barrington rolled out a big post wer all the presidents on it. grace could not believe her eyes. where are the girls! that's a very good question, says mrs. barrington. the truth is, our country has never had a woman president. no girl president? ever! >> no, i'm afraid not, said mrs. barrington. >> grace sat down at her desk. no girls. whatever heard of such a crazy thing. finally she raised her hand. >> scholars from uc berkeley, we talked about how very special we were. we tell you all the time you are special. the mayor, of all the other schools in san francisco, chose to come. and uc berkeley. so the mayor will talk to you a little while. all of our attention is which way? >> well, good morning everyone. >> good morning. >> i want to first begin by thanking your teacher, ms. mayes, for letting me come and be part of your class room today. of course your p
that i have had the elective office have been a rare and privilege opportunity to serve, which i think is to be the best districts of the state of california, and the city and county of san francisco, this past couple of years in the sonoma county as well and going back and representing the west tip as well. and i want to continue to make sure that we have a strong government, strong and effective state government. and i have talked about the governor nans issue, making sure that we let the majority rule so that we don't have the kind of stall mates that we find currently where the minority party can block what the majority wants to do and so we can have the democracy. i make the point that we didn't become the 8th or 9th largest economy in the world by chance. we became so because for generations we taxed ourselves appropriately and invested in some of the best public structures this world has ever seen, the best k-12 system, the most accessible and affordable higher education system so that children can pursue the hope and dream of a college degree. we invested in water system and tr
he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and mayors deal with the storm until it got closer to hitting the coastal areas along the washington, d.c., new york city corridor. well, we wanted to invite michael brown on the show here to have him explain that comment a little bit more. he's joining us now. he's cohost with david sirota in denver the cohost a.m. 630khow in denver, the station they're on. michael brown, thank you so much for joining us. >> my pleasure. how are you guys doing? >> cenk: great. so, michael, of course, everybody is wondering about this comment. what in the world do you mean that president obama moved too fast in this case to deal with this storm? >> there's really no explaining because -- the article -- the reporter calls -- talk about the politics of disaster. >> cenk: that's a shame.
will be right before entering their new year, and then after that their election season, which they would once again be politically paralyzed. and if that opportunity can be utilized, it will be very interesting to see, do both sides have the discipline? both sides claim they're winning and doing great. they all have their rhetoric and talking points as to why the a rain spring has been fantastic for them, but do they have the ability and the discipline to go to the negotiating table and translate whatever strength it is that they have into a strong negotiating position and then change that strength into an actual deal? i suspect if we don't see something -- obviously i don't think it will be an end deal at all before the iranian new deal in march -- but if there isn't any progress before this period, it's going to be quite questionable at what moment it can be achieved again, because then the political circus and both sides are going to start again and negotiations are going to once again become the victim of domestic policies. thanks so much.
